. that brings us to iran. we are using diplomacy to fully identify and address the threat brought to us by iran's nuclear program. it is a real threat. we have always taken it as such. we have no illusions. let me restate something that president obama has made clear since day one and reiterated again this afternoon -- we will not allow iran to acquire a nuclear weapon, period, not now, not ever. now, believe me, the united states fully understands that israel perceives a nuclear iran as an existential threat. why? because it is. and we understand that. while we may sometimes favor a , therent tactical choice u.s. and israel have always shared the same fundamental goal. as we move forward in this negotiation, we will continue to consult very closely with israel, as with our other friends and allies in the region and around the world, whose input is critical to us in this process. this week, prime minister netanyahu's advisor will travel to the united states with direct conversations -- for direct conversations with our iran experts. that will help us to coordinate and shape our positions with r

with whatever further steps are needed to prevent iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, including, as president obama just made clear, a military option if that were necessary. so, there shouldn't be an ounce of doubt. this is a debate we shouldn't be having. the real question is what is going to happen with the final agreement. the united states stands squarely behind our israeli friends and allies in the region and in the world. the result of all these steps we are taking is that iran's breakout time, the period required to produce enough weapons grade material intended for nuclear weapons, will have been increased because of our diplomacy. we are obviously well aware that even a comprehensive agreement would not solve all of our problems with iran. we don't pretend that they do. it wouldn't address their support for hezbollah. it won't deal with syria, although it would have some impact, ultimately. it doesn't deal with other terrorist organizations or their attempt to destabilize our partners throughout the region. whatever the outcome of the upcoming negotiations, iran will still have much

the analysis that his days were numbered as people said. and in august 2011, president obama said he must step aside. why do you think that happened? >> they completely misread iran and russia's commitment to helping him stay in power. when you have two major financial military intelligence provid providers who leverage was significant and both of those were not factored in. if you look at it from a recent history lesson and what happened in libya you could see why he was going quickly and they took that and plopped it in syria and thought it would be the same thing. you had the same elements happening in syria that happened in libya but they couldn't let it go. so, they ramped up their ability to protect him and try to at least increase the ability of the syrian regular military forces in a way that you would not see in libya or anywhere else. and because they didn't read what was going on, i think they missed the boat on how long he would stay. and what they did when they did the chemical agreement because there was no component of him involved in that agreement about any tenor in the regime

to iran, sending a signal that they're not crazy about the interim deal the obama administration signed on to. another thing to watch for really quickly is the farm bill. negotiators are still trying to reach an agreement on a farm bill. if they can't get a deal, they're going to have to at least extend existing farm spending, so that's something that could be done. and finally, the senate's here for an extra week, they're going to be looking at a lot of nominations, particularly after the filibuster changes that senate democrats rammed through. among the big nominees are the new chairwoman of the federal reserve, janet yellen. >> host: and one more question for you. a number of articles in the last couple of weeks have suggested this is the most unproductive congress ever. why is this it so hard to get anything done on capitol ill? >> guest: well, it's divided government. you've got the senate run by democrats, the house run by republicans. whenever you have that situation, it's tough to get anything done. in addition, in the republican conference you have a situation where leadership

a question for the doctor. i wanted to ask if you could discuss the endgame for the u.s. and iran, especially concerning the fact -- doesn't want to end sanctions and considering that it has considered the -- you said that in the article obama back down to benjamin netanyahu. and this is the same process that created this arrangement. and in the context of which i hope we don't lose our sense of rationality because a war in the middle east is going to make his expedition into afghanistan and iraq look like short-term lasting a dozen years or so. the united states for 30 years managed to prevent a nuclear war and they are able to convince both of those countries and the soviet union why we would have to go to war. and that would preserve their independence even if there is no solution with the iranians. the israelis have 200 or more and they are not one-sided we vulnerable and i am quite sure that we make a subsequent full-scale treaty with iran. >> and this would be preferable for military action. >> there's no reason to believe it wouldn't work if the united states was committed and was a pr
